Penne with Chicken and Asparagus
With some modifications, this was exactly the dish my tastebuds were waiting for. I read through many reviews before deciding on my cooking game plan. I wasn't going for "light", I was going for delicious. I added fresh broccoli in addition to the asparagus (yay veggies!). Instead of cubing the chicken I sliced the breasts in half so they'd be thin. I sauteed the salted and peppered chicken with onion and plenty of freshly minced garlic cloves in olive oil. I also used a lot more chicken broth (didn't use low sodium)- at least a cup. I also took the plunge and added Philadelphia cream cheese (quite a bit). Next time I will add even more broth and cream cheese so it has more sauce. One reviewer recommended added a splash of milk as well and I think I will try that next time. The creamy sauce is great, and I love having tons of asparagus and broccoli in with the chicken and pasta. This also froze and reheated well. It's good stuff, enjoy!
